Lo­ca­tion: Chile Web:­ Email: jo­ Softwa re: Pho­to­shop

Josu grew up on Chiloé Is­land, lo­cated in the south­ern half of Chile: “There, I was al­ways sur­rounded by na­ture and the mythol­ogy of the people. It’s prob­a­bly why I’m such a big fan of all things fan­tasy-re­lated. Al­though dis­cov­er­ing Magic: The Gath­er­ing at the age of eight also had some­thing to do with it!”

Paint­ing be­came a real­is­tic propo­si­tion for Josu in his early 20s, al­though ac­quir­ing a for­mal ed­u­ca­tion in the sub­ject never ap­pealed. He in­stead stud­ied pho­tog­ra­phy and films – and his skills with a sty­lus soon fol­lowed.


Lady of the Fall en “This piece is im­por­tant to me be­cause it’s the one where I fi­nally had an artis­tic break­through, get­ting closer to the kind of art that I’ve al­ways wanted to do.”


Trauco “This is the first piece of a se­ries of il­lus­tra­tions based on the mythol­ogy of Chiloé. The ugly lit­tle dude is the Trauco, who gets women preg­nant when he finds them in the for­est.”



Ba ron Sen­gir “I’ve al­ways wanted to work with Magic: The Gath­er­ing, so from time to time I think that re­do­ing old cards would be a good idea. This is my take on Baron Sen­gir from Home­lands.”
